It’s hard to make a place as massive as The Anthem feel like a family gathering, but Punch Brothers did just that with some great banter and even greater musicianship.
All it took was an off-the-cuff show back in 2014, and the trio of Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O'Donovan knew they had something special. Formalizing this new union under the name I'm With Her, the three powerhouses have spent the past few years sporadically touring the group around, releasing an EP, and now they are releasing their much-anticipated debut full-length, See You Around.
Built on a foundation of tradition, intimate confessionalism, and expert musicianship, See You Around owes as much to the musician's past as it seems like a logical waypoint on their journey through song. We're going in on the supergroup's debut to find out if I'm With Her has got legs or if we're going to be seeing them around for a long time to come.
PLUS! Kim Ware's The Good Graces is back with The Hummingbird EP, and we've got it's charming AF leadoff track for you to put in your earholes!

In just a few short years, singer/songwriter Sarah Jarosz has manged to become a heavy-hitting mainstay on the folk, bluegrass, and Americana scenes. On her latest release, Undercurrent, Jarosz has built on the foundation she laid on 2013's critically lauded Build Me Up From Bones, to produce an instant classic of modern folk.
State Champion is a band. That rocks. That's the pitch.
Now push play.
